About Sales Commissions

Sales Commissions are easy to calculate and pay from within ManageMore. You simply choose the time period in which to pay commissions for: ManageMore will then extract the commission type information from the SKUs involved in the invoices and calculate the total amount of commission to be paid for each invoice created within the selected time period. You can then modify the commission information on any of those invoices, and then post the information to make a permanent record of these commission amounts. Reports can then be generated to total up the amounts for each employee. All of this can be done within a matter of minutes and using only a few mouse clicks.
